The Okidata MC562w color laser printer includes scanning, copying, and faxing capabilities. It is an upgrade from the similar MC362 model, with faster speeds and a full keyboard on its control panel. It uses a compatible design for Okidata MC562w printer toner as well, keeping costs lower for both models.
Since it includes wireless capabilities, the base model is referred to as the MC562w, but a MC562dnw model is also available, with duplexing included as well. For devices that support Apple AirPrint, there is not setup required, which makes it very convenient for printing from smartphones and tablets.
Paper handling is impressive for such a compact machine, with a main drawer that holds 250 sheets and a 100-sheet bypass tray. The bypass tray is particularly convenient for printing on transparencies, envelopes, and other alternative media without clearing the main drawer. A second drawer can be added for a total of 880 sheets of input paper capacity.
Reviewers found the MC562w's print quality to be average for its class on text and graphics, but the photo quality left a bit to be desired. Reviewers also praised the excellent scanning features, as users can send scanned documents to an email address, save them to a flash drive, and more. Of course, using digital scans of documents also helps to reduce the amount of paper and Okidata MC562w toner used, trimming down operating costs.
Users can choose standard or high-capacity toners when replacements are needed. The standard Oki MC562w toner cartridges have a yield of around 3,000 pages for each color and 3,500 pages for black. The high-capacity Okidata MC562w toner cartridges offer a lower cost per page, offering up to 5,000 pages each.
For buyers who want to do a lot of photo printing with their laser printer, the Oki MC562 might not be the ideal choice. For a busy small office environment, however, its wireless networking support, fast output speeds, and sharp text are an impressive combination considering its low price.
